$2009 AWD Hybrid Fiero - How it works

This is a run through what it takes to drive the AWD hybrid Fiero and how to drive it in different modes. I built this car for the Grassroots Motorsports $2009 challenge, with a total investment of about $1800. Here's a link to the build thread: http://grassrootsmotorsports.com/fiero

Fiero electric motor transaxle first test
This is a major milestone in my 1986 Pontiac Fiero electric car conversion project. After numerous delays getting the correct adapting hardware for the new motor to the old transaxle, we finally mounted the clutch and motor assembly onto the transaxle and frame of the car. With everything in place, I applied a regular 12 car battery to the motor and amazingly, it ran without a hitch! See my website (www.roboticmayhem.com) for more information on this project.





$2009 AWD Fiero Hybrid - First drag strip pass
This was from the first night at the drag strip with the $2009 AWD Fiero hybrid. Nevermind me sleeping at the light, I wasn't too worried about the reaction time.

World's Fastest Fiero? 383 Stroker V-8 Supercharged with Performance Cam, Headers, Tuned, Etc.
http://LamboReplicaForSale.com | 500+ horsepower, supercharged 383 Stroker V8 Pontiac Fiero monster! I picked up this new "toy" on Ebay for $4,000. The guy that sold it to me warned me that it is "dangerously fast." After driving it one time, I agree. This car is scary to drive! I'm planning to build a Lamborghini replica using this as the donor. It may be the fastest Lambo





$2009 AWD Hybrid Fiero - First test drive!
First test drive with the $2009 AWD Fiero. The video shows the car in electric only mode, it's so quiet that you can't even hear the motor over the road noise from the nearby street! This was the first time the new suspension has been driven on as well. Here's a link to the build thread: http://grassrootsmotorsports.com/forum/grm/west-coast-2009-challenger-awd-f iero-hybrid/10519/page4/





$2009 AWD Fiero Hybrid - First drag strip pass
This is the very first trip down the drag strip with the $2009 AWD Fiero hybrid. Nevermind me sleeping at the light, I wasn't too worried about the reaction time. Not only was this the first pass, so far this is the fastest pass. 9.36 at 69 mph.

How Diff Lock Works and When To Use It (UK Terminology, Land Rover)
This video instructs the viewer on how the standard *CENTRE* "diff lock" works in a permanent 4 wheel drive (4x4) vehicle, a Land Rover in this case, and gives an idea for how and when to use it. A Land Rover Discovery was the vehicle featured in the demonstrations, but this video applies to any 4x4 vehicle with a center diff lock. In summary, diff lock (whether it be the centre diff lock fitted as standard or front/rear aftermarket diff lock) is useful in slippery situations such as snow, ice and mud.

Ford SHO mid engine RWD in a Fiero Redneck dune buggy
Initial Startup, running in the parking lot by my shop. A few donuts, a few drifts and some straight line runs. A piss poor attempt to laying a patch! lol My friends and I have spent over 400 hours building this car. It is caged with race seats and harness belts. I plated the chassis and completely rebuilt the back end of the frame to suit my driving needs! I used the subframe from the Taurus SHO and modified it to fit the Fiero. I also plated the subframe and added a 1/2" thick aluminum skidplate! This baby is built to drive the piss out of it! :D It will be interesting when I start running exotic blends of fuel, as I am only starting off with some 87 Octane fuel to start with here. More to come in time.... I have an MTX and a auto Tranny I am willing to sell!
